About Me

I am so excited to be your child's 1st grade teacher for the 2021-2022 school year. I can not wait to have the best school year ever!


I graduated from The University of Texas - Pan American in 2008 with a Bachelor's in Finance.  I am certified in the following areas:
  • Core Subjects EC-6
  • Bilingual Education Supplemental 

This is my 6th year teaching after a 10 year career with the federal government.  It was such a rewarding career but I felt it in my heart that I needed to be a teacher.  So I took the leap and pursued a career in education.  6 years later and I know I made one of the best decisions in my life by becoming a teacher.  

I am happily married to my husband of 16 years and have 3 beautiful children together; Gaby (10th grade), Nathan (5th grade), and Aubrey (1st).  When I am not teaching, my kids usually have me running around town between basketball, tennis, and strength training, chess and tournaments.  I love easy-to-care-for plants and all things photography.  My favorite colors are green and gray.  Oh, I almost forgot, quarantine made us add some dogs to the family.  May I present to you our two doods, Melo and Luka.
